Church Hill Barn in Suffolk, UK GisMullr Jan 20, 2017 Barn houses seem to be pretty popular these days. And I have to admit that I love it! Barns that are converted into houses are spacious, bright and inspiring. Like the one we are showing you today. Church Hill Barn is a beautiful home on the Essex and Suffolk border. The project was actually a renovation. Church Hill Barn was part of several buildings for the Assington Hall Estate, destroyed by fire in the 1950s. David Nossiter Architects did a great job restoring it. Giving the place a modern look with a cozy and warm feel. Polished concrete floors, timber, brick and a pretty open plan come together beautifully here. And the result in simply inspiring for those who like the idea of barn living. Take a look. The restoration also used materials from the other buildings from the former Estate.

So, Obama gave us Libya instead of Iraq; and Syria instead of Afghanistan; and Yemen as the Saudsplayground for their American-made weapons and supported by their U.S. trainers — and also civil war and ethnic cleansing in Ukraine instead of peace with Russia (whose longest European border is the one it shares with Ukraine). And, instead of an economic crash, Obama gave us (besides his pretty rhetoric of ‘concern’ about the elite’s injustices that his actual actions did nothing to punish ) increased economic inequality, flatlined wages, and soaring poverty with lots of new burger-flipping jobs . How much are such realities being reported (except by Bernie Sanders, whom the Clinton-Obama Democratic Party cheated out of the nomination, by manipulating the primaries and relying — and feeding — upon Democratic suckers, on Election Day)? Lies are not permitted to be calledlies’, unless they are made by the ‘enemy’ (such as Putin), even if the ‘enemyisnt really the one who is lying.

It's pretty clear to me, you don't get a meeting unless you're prepared to kiss his.....ring. Folk are good at preaching to the powerless, but can't muster the courage to speak truth to the powerful. 4. Save the spin. Let's just be honest, most of the Black folk who are taking these meetings with Trump are trying to advance their own projects. Most are folk who have been anointed or appointed by the mainstream culture, not elected or selected by the Black community. If you want to meet with Trump so you can get the hook up, then just say that. But for goodness' sake, stop telling Black folk that Trump is 'sincere,' 'caring,' and 'concerned' after you've had one thirty minute meeting with him. We watched him daily for an entire year, but you've gleaned some fresh insights in less than an hour? Miss me with that mess. 5. Lead. Love. Save. Serve.

More than just a pretty face At the heart of the new R9s is a Qualcomm octa-core processor with 4GB memory, and its 64GB on-board storage can be expanded up to an additional 256GB via a microSD card slot. The device will ship with ColorOS 3.0 which is based on Android 6.0. A huge 3,010 mAh battery can be juiced up with VOOC Flash Charge technology, which should get you two full hours of talk time from only a 5-minute charge, and some newly developed power-saving optimisations should keep you afloat for longer. At the mid-range price of $598, the R9s features some reasonably premium features, like a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) AMOLED display, an advanced fingerprint reader and a new Six-String antenna design that claims to improve both 4G and Wi-Fi signals. The Oppo R9s will be available January 30th, or you can pre-order it now from JB Hi-Fi , Optus and Woolworths Mobile, as well as Oppos new partners, Vodafone and Virgin Mobile.

But this phase, where things look tacky and dated and the temptation is there to do away with them rather than give them the nurturing they need, happens with all kinds of things. Dunlop Green Flash trainers. Doilies. The prawn cocktail. Level 42. I’m pretty sure it happened with David Beckham and John Major. Let’s not pretend that cars dont suffer it too. The other day I saw a Mk2 Ford Granada estate and it looked magnificent. Before last week, the last time I thought one looked magnificent was in 1985, when I was 10. Between then and now, I’ve thought they were fairly ropey old things. But now I can imagine wanting one. There are cars still in that dip, at risk of being Brutalised to death. I think the first Ford Focus , an early adopter of Ford’s ‘new edgedesign language, is thickest in it. The 1996 Ka might already be on the way out. The problem with cars is that not only do automotive fashions change, but materials, surfacing and edging technology also moves at such a pace that they just look dumpy or outdated.

We can expect pretty much more of the same for his inauguration address. Yes, I think so. His whole pitch over the last 18 months, two years, has been as the outsider, has been about connecting with people who feel utterly disillusioned with politics, with people who believe they have been left behind by traditional politics and political parties.

Each time the thermometer measures the temperature of a spot, the software decodes the temperature on the LCD display and then tells the Arduino to use the servos to point the thermometer at the next spot to be measured. Each measurement takes a little time, so scanning an entire location as 70×44 spots takes around a half hour. But the end result is a heat map drawn on the laptop, done by a device that is low-tech. [Editor's Snark: Because attaching a webcam and processing the images is low-tech these days.] He can overlay the heat map on a normal photo to see at a glance where the hot spots are. The software he wrote is available on GitHub and the video below shows it in action. We've got to admit, it's pretty awesome to watch. You can even see the heat map being filled in one measurement at a time. [Niklas] is somewhat of a regular here on Hackaday and his projects span an impressive range of creative ideas.
